The Faraway Strip of Land Separates a Backwater from the Sea

The Faraway Strip of Land Separates a Backwater from the Sea

A strip of land in the distance lined by coconut trees looking like little fuzzy tops perched on toothpicks stuck in the land separates the vast expanses of the calm waters of the Edava Nadayara Kayal (lake) from the Arabian Sea. This beautiful natural scene is from Kappil in Kollam district in Kerala, where the lake forms part of Kerala’s famous backwaters. The Kappil – Thekumbhagom road runs on the strip of land, providing backdrops to spectacular scenic beauty. The photo was taken on an overcast and dark afternoon to the backdrop of a substantial drizzle, from the 12082 Jan Shatabdi Express when passing over the railway bridge on the lake.

The map below shows the location of the strip of land and the railway bridge adjacent to it at Edava.
